Are you interested in the Built Environment? With an entrepreneurial mindset?

Real estate and the built environment are rife with opportunities for innovative ideas and impactful thinking. Needs abound in affordable housing, sustainable building and operations, and smart uses of data science. And contrary to what you might think, you don't have to be an industry veteran to grow your ideas and make your voice heard.

Join fellow students as our panel of young entrepreneurs engages in a fruitful discussion around the need to shake things up in the real estate and built environment industries, the development and growth of their respective companies, and the successes and struggles they encountered along the way. Q&A to follow. No background in real estate needed!
